Overcoming Ongoing Pain and Suffering After an Accident

We probably don’t need to tell you that the ongoing pain and suffering after an accident isn’t just physical, but comes in all shapes and sizes. Just as individual as your accident scenario was, your ongoing injuries will be too so it’s important to recognize and get help for them

Whether it was your injuries or you’re watching the pain and suffering of your loved ones who were involved, living with the aftermath of an auto accident is often felt by the whole family- not just the person injured. If you’re a parent watching a child suffering or perhaps watching your partner living with injuries, you can feel helpless.

Why you don’t need to prove physical harm to claim pain in Arizona

If you’ve been involved in an accident, you may be living with many other symptoms of the pain and suffering endured from having an accident, from anxiety, irritability, and even insomnia. You may also be adding to your mental trauma by worrying that the suffering you or they are experiencing won’t be recognized in the eyes of the law- but you’d be wrong.

The law in Arizona has undergone some significant changes in recent years to protect victims of an accident in their mental pain and suffering after an accident as well as physical harm. This means, your accident doctor will be able to provide the courts with sufficient evidence of suffering to ensure it’s involved in your overall settlement 

Common Symptoms of Pain and Suffering After an Accident you may not Expect

Anxiety, depression, anger, stress, and irritability- these may be common symptoms of pain and suffering of having experienced a car accident but what about the headaches, insomnia, and ongoing PTSD that can also happen? These are considered a mental injury and is typically caused by the terror or shock of nearly dying or watching a close loved one’s injury or death. This is a different type of mental anguish, referred to as the Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, and will be recognized by a court of law in our state as a separate injury from the physical injuries you’ve also endured.

Here in Arizona, our law separates the term emotional distress from negligence in an auto accident, meaning a good lawyer will define it as an entirely separate claim that helps recognize the horror you or a family member has experienced.

So I suffered a tragic motorcycle accident leaving me injured and quite unhappy…… also the bike was totaled. This all star law team secured a large settlement for all my suffering. This process was very well advised by an aggressive and determined lawyer. All I can say is now I’m left a very happy man. Thank you karissa for working quick to bring my tragic story to a much warmer end. Just call them! You won’t regret it!

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
